Benkö: "I created this problem with the express purpose of fooling Bobby Fischer, just like Loyd did to Steinitz [s. P1055026]. Bobby fell right into my trap solutions: 1. Qxe2+ Nxe2 2. Bg4 Nc3+ 3.Kf3 0-0 mate, and 1. Bxe2 Nxe2 2. Qc4 Nbc3+ 3. Kd3 0-0-0 mate. Both solutions are illegal because White's last move had to be with his King, thus voiding any thought of castling!"

Doppelveröffentlichung,
TO DO: Jahr klären 1969? oder 1970?
in "My life games and compositions" ist Berliner Morgenpost, 1970 angegeben.

Benkö in 'My Life': "244 embraces a form of paradox that left Botvinnik, Keres and Geller baffled. They were all forced to give up after an hour of energetic searching. ... If it was White to move, there would be several corner mates (even without White's Rook!). However, with Black to move the mate in three is only possible in the middle of the board. This apparent lack of logic (every one looked for a corner mate) baffled many strong players."
Z Kornin: Ungarische Schach Problem Anthologie and Nunn's Solving in Style both gives "Berliner Morgenpost" 1970 (2006-9-17)

Benkö in 'My Life': "Creating a double Queen sacrifice like this is quite an achievement, yet the judge in the Schach Echo helpmate contest didn't appreciate it and only awarded the problem an honorable mention. Later, this problem became one of the most popular examples of the bad judging that is so common in publications."

in 'My Life' sind die Zwillinge vertauscht [d.h. a) mit wSg3] und gemäß der Angaben in diesem Buch hat das Problem eine ehrende Erwähnung erhalten.

Benkö in 'My Life': "It seems [in b)] that White could have also mated in two by 1.Ng4 Kxf3 2.0-0 mate. However, this is a trick since the initial position isn't possible if White still retains the right to castle kingside."

Benkö in 'My Life': "... number 53 was the last problem I composed as a teenager. It was published many times because its original setup appealed to problem-solvers and tournament players alike.
... During the Lugano Olympiad, which Bobby Fischer attended as a spectator, I made a bet with him that he couldn't solve it in thirty minutes. As time ran out, he became irritated and demanded to see the answer. When I showed it to him, he insisted that other solutions had to exist. Naturally, this led to another bet! After more time passed, he was forced to settle both wagers. The teenage Pal Benko never would have guessed how much mileage he was going to get out of that little problem! ... For those that find problem 53 difficult, let me give you a BIG hint (I'll put it in the form of a riddle): Why did Bobby have so much trouble solving this problem? Because he always played the Ruy Lopez instead of the Giuoco Piano.
... M. Grigoriev imitated this problem by placing Black's King on b4. He published it in 64 in 1982 [s. P1147083], claiming a mate in two by 1.Qd5. Unfortunately, he overlooked the cook 1.Qd4+."
